Recently, WJOA member Jonah Schrogin went to Poland to volunteer at JCC Krakow, where he sorted and packed food for Ukrainian refugees. Come see his short presentation and learn how you can contribute to the cause. Then stick around for Happy Hour at Heart of Gold, one of the new great bars in Astoria.

Homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure have been destroyed under layers of rubble.
